    Planet Walala @Harbour City

    Date: 21 March to 21 April, 2024
    Location: Harbour City

    London based French multi-disciplinary artist, Camille Walala, will present three major art projects in Hong Kong. There’s the first of its kind Hong Kong City Sign, an artistic interactive maze installation, and her solo art exhibition.

    The Hong Kong City Sign – “Now You See It Now You Don’t” is a brand-new permanent artistic landmark. Her outdoor maze “A-MAZE” will be displayed at the Ocean Terminal Deck. Meanwhile, Camille will host her first solo art exhibition “Metropolis” at Gallery by the Harbour to showcase her work. Camille Walala is well-known for her artworks encompassing full-facade murals, immersive 3D installations, street art, interior and set design – all characterised by bold colours and geometric patterns.

    The new Hong Kong City Sign, titled “Now You See It Now You Don’t”, draws influence from optical artworks by George Rousse. Though each sculpture stands alone as a beautiful object, viewers can only read the letters of “HONG KONG” from a certain point of view, giving the City Sign its name “Now You See It Now You Don’t”.
